Fish can’t live without water – You can’t live without God - Ecclesiastes 3:11 (GW)

July 4, 2011
Ecclesiastes 3:11 (GW)
11 It is beautiful how God has done everything at the right time. He has put a sense of eternity in people's minds. Yet, mortals still can't grasp what God is doing from the beginning to the end {of time}.
Read my bio on Twitter - @BlancaV - and you will find out that I love Jesus. I’m on Twitter to talk about how the Lord finally caught me in his arms after I insisted on living the life of a fish out of water. It’s hard to live outside of water if you were made to swim in the ocean with the big fish. J
I never try to persuade anyone to see things my way nor am I out there bashing religion or trying to convert people [God does that]. That’s not my gifting. I’m out there to tweet Scripture as I’m inspired by the Holy Spirit and to tell all how God “put me back in the ocean” where I belong.  I am also an encourager and a pastoral caregiver – those are gifts from God that I use to help others.
I don’t have a world view anymore nor do I try to get everyone to like me, but I am very nice about it. I simply tell it like it is – how the Lord changed my life. I don’t try to talk to those who don’t believe, but they always seem to find my I love Jesus Tweets. I’m always fascinated by the responses I get from those who call themselves atheists or agnostics and those who bash religion. 
I have a news flash for them: You have God’s handprint in your DNA and he is relentless in his pursuit for you – no matter how you feel. God doesn’t want you flipping and flopping out and about – he wants you back in the ocean where you belong – with the big fish doing the things you were created to do.
I’m just the messenger. J Don’t hate me.

  1. Thanks Blanca. I've lost over 1000 followers with a single tweet about God. It seems to be only Christians who block me and try to get me banned from Twitter. I have great discussions with people of all faiths and I know I need to be there to understand and connect not convert. Although sometimes it's hard to show love in 140 characters when you have a tendency towards sarcasm :)

Scripture: Psalm 92:12-15
Psalm 92:
12 Good people will prosper
    like palm trees,
    and they will grow strong
    like the cedars of Lebanon.
13 They will take root
in your house, LORD God,
    and they will do well.
14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,
    even when they are old.
15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…
